"Being in and out of real record label studios working on tracks was the best part! Every part of my course at The Faktory took me to a new environment. It was so helpful to be able to work with so many audio engineers, producers and artists who are already inside the industry! We need more schools like this!

ASSORTMENT OF PROMISING CAREER PATHS


Understanding how sound works and what it takes to capture, create, or process it is a valuable set of abilities that can be used in a wide range of different ways. And because professional audio is needed for so many forms of media, a person's career in this field can overlap a variety of enjoyable areas. So as you begin exploring where your own potential might lie, think about the following general roles, starting with the differences between an audio engineer and a producer:

[ Open All | Close All ]

Audio Engineers:
are mostly involved in the technical parts of the work. That is, they handle physical equipment and/or operate digital audio workstations (DAWs). And they usually specialize in just one or a few particular aspects of the recording, editing, mixing, and mastering process. For example, some sound technicians or engineers may work primarily with microphones, preamps, and amplifiers. Others might work behind a mixing console or assist with editing captured audio on a DAW system like ProTools or Logic Pro.

Sound and music producers:
are like directors. They coordinate everything, managing both audio engineers and any musicians or vocal talent being used. A producer often brings his or her own creative sensibilities and vision to a project and may even contribute some songwriting or performing.

Independent recording engineers and producers:
are often on the go and work in all kinds of different places as professionals who contract their services on a project-by-project basis. They frequently use portable equipment to capture and produce quality audio for anything from live event broadcasts to radio segments to podcasting and online streaming.

Professional recording engineers and producers:
typically work for a well-equipped studio or in a live setting for a particular act or venue. Just like professionals in independent recording, they can get hired to provide services for all kinds of interesting projects, from music albums to game sounds to movie voiceovers.

Electronic music artists and producers:
specialize in the use of digital software such as Logic Pro or Ableton Live to create unique audio compositions or live entertainment. Although they sometimes make use of traditional instruments, they typically stick to devices like samplers, MIDI sequencers, and synthesizers to create the sounds they need.


Excellent Salary Potential

The median hourly wage for audio technicians in Canada is $27.50 (about $57,200 yearly), but they can earn incomes as high as $40.87 or more per hour (about $85,010 yearly).

For audio producers, the numbers are just as compelling. Within Canada, the median wage for professionals in the category that also includes producers of other media is $26.67 per hour (about $55,474 annually). Their wages can go up to $47.17 or more per hour (about $98,114 annually).

What makes our programs so effective for today's aspiring musician

What makes our programs so effective for today's aspiring musician


  • Accelerated pace – programs don’t take more than 6 months.

  • Learning through experience-there’s not enough time to go to school and wait for the actual experience. Start navigating through the industry from day one of your program

  • 1-on-1 focus-an aspiring musician needs guidance and mentorship. Being in a classroom defeats the purpose of your learning efforts. Every musician needs an industry professional by their side to guide them in the music business as well as help craft and perfect your sound.

  • Artist development-your development as an artist starts on the first day. A careful focus on your music, your audience, your career building process. Start the marketing process from the day you start your program.

  • Networking opportunities-an aspiring musician needs connections from the day they start their career. Working in various industry studios will build your connections by the time you’re done with the program.

  • Facilities-learn and work on actual industry projects (including your projects) in state of the art studios with professional engineers by your side. This experience cannot be provided by class-room education.

"I learned everything about all of the major software out there. I was using FL studio when I enrolled in the Master Audio program so I was a beginner. By the time my course was completed, I learned to use Logic, Live, Pro Tools and a lot of mastering VST plugins, such as Waves, etc. I can definitely say Noize Faktory opened up a whole new world of production software for me!"

This is why flexible scheduling has shown us the highest results in the progress of our students. Scheduling and 1-on-1 approach are the key elements of our courses.

  • Variety of locations

This is what makes your course even more progressive. Imagine taking your classes in different studio locations around your city! We place you in several high-end studios within your city to complete your course and depending on the subjects covered in your curriculum you will be taking classes in different assigned studios. Let's say your next session is covering Recording with Live Bands - this would mean we will place you in the closest high end studio that specializes in SSL boards and live band mic setups.

"I wasn't sure what I wanted to learn when I first spoke to an Admissions advisor, but I knew I wanted to be in the music industry. I started with a Recording Arts course and it opened my eyes to the reality of this business. I enrolled into the Master Audio right after to continue my education. I am now employed as an engineer in one of the biggest studios in North America. The mentorship here really put me on the correct path.
